I've left loads out. 

Ain't that the truth for all of us. I failed to find room for Bowie, for Songs in the Key of Life, for Springsteen, for Let It Bleed, for London Calling, for any Jam,  for any Blues...

 

This is hard!

The Joshua Tree (U2)

Graceland (Paul Simon)

Definitely Maybe (Oasis)

Brothers in Arms (Dire Straits)

@easytoslip Grass over here has just told me you've added two albums from the same artist. I hadn't looked at your list as it doesn't have the artists in it. Please re-submit, and keep an eye on Cloggy. 

Didn't realise, it was one per band etc, I'll send again.

Hoy Hoy would be a compilation but I will back you up on any of the studio records up to Time Loves a Hero.

I reckon their first two albums are pretty lame, really went up a few gears when they sorted the line up prior to Dixie Chicken.

Gradney, Paul Barrere and Sam added into the gumbo - still Sailin Shoes is pretty good.
